       ipc - System V IPC system calls

       int ipc(unsigned int call, int first, int second, int third,
	       void *ptr, long fifth);

       ipc()  is  a  common  kernel entry point for the System V IPC calls for
       messages, semaphores, and shared memory.	  call	determines  which  IPC
       function	 to  invoke;  the  other  arguments  are passed through to the
       appropriate call.

       User programs should call the  appropriate  functions  by  their	 usual
       names.	Only  standard library implementors and kernel hackers need to
       know about ipc().

       ipc() is Linux-specific, and should not be used in programs intended to
       be portable.

       On some architectures—for example x86-64 and ARM—there is no ipc() sys‐
       tem call; instead msgctl(2), semctl(2), shmctl(2), and so on really are
       implemented as separate system calls.

       msgctl(2),   msgget(2),	msgrcv(2),  msgsnd(2),	semctl(2),  semget(2),
       semop(2), semtimedop(2), shmat(2), shmctl(2), shmdt(2), shmget(2)

       This page is part of release 3.54 of the Linux  man-pages  project.   A
       description  of	the project, and information about reporting bugs, can
       be found at http://www.kernel.org/doc/man-pages/.
